Frederick C. Seil Memorial

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of former Capri Owner and Educator Mr. Fred. In 1955, Fred graduated from American Beauty School and began his career in Cosmetology as a hairstylist at Marshall Fields and Charles A. Stevens. After independent styling, he owned Capri Salon then turned to Cosmetology Education. In 1960, Fred took ownership of Capri School of Beauty Culture, Inc with his late business partner Leslie Zitzka. More than ten thousand students graduated from Capri, many whom were taught by ‘Mr. Fred’ himself. After retiring in 2003 he traveled the world, visiting 6 out of the 7 continents with his beloved wife Joanie (Ms. Joan). When he wasn’t traveling, Freddy attempted to fill every waking minute fishing in the Florida Keys or watching his beloved Cubs. He and Joan were married for 63 years and enjoyed a life well-lived with their three children and five grandchildren.
